Bottom Line: Buy the sucker. It works great for me. I get good capps. out of it, for cheap.
Positive Product Points

Very easy to use. Makes good espresso. Very quick heat up time =
90sec. & very quick goes over to steam mode. I'm glad I bought the
thing. -Once I served about 70-80 caps. at a party-worked great.

Negative Product Points

Outer plastic shell. Lots of plastic. Water resevoir too small (ain't a big
deal if 'ya gotta sink next to it.) No by pass switching valve to alternate
bean type (decaff.)

Detailed Commentary

Overall, this is a good machine. I use it 1-2 times a day. It heats up
quick and I get esp. cap. at the touch of a button. It's good and fun to
own. Its got knobs that control the amount of water and espresso for
each shot. (good control) It isn't beautiful (I like metal better) -but it
doesn't look too bad. I would recomend that you buy this machine. It's
much cheaper than most espresso machines & includes a good conical
burr grinder with it. Clean up ain't bad.
One thing that wasn't good was that the tool used to open the filter is
a cheap plastic deal that broke upon my fist attempt to open the filter.
It's ok though. I just use a wrench now when I need to clean the filter.
(Not a big deal)

Buying Experience

I bought it off ebay. It was shipped within a week. I LOVE ebay. I saved
155 off of the website prices.

Three Month Followup

it still works well, just clean it weekly
